Commissioning is a meticulous process of verifying and validating that the design and construction conform to the requirements and specifications of the owner’s initial project. We come to make sure that the installation built corresponds to the original design intent.
How? ‘Or’ What ? Thanks to different test scenarios (IST Commissioning test from level 1 to 5).
This is where our load banks and our Commissioning team come in, since they carry out these different test scenarios for you.
“Commissioning is an essential process to guarantee the quality and reliability of data centres.”
Rentaload most commonly assists with level 3, 4 and 5 commissioning tests .
We come to check with the help of our commissioning agent and our dedicated equipment that everything is working perfectly inside the datacentre (whether electrical or thermal equipment, individually or coordinated).
In connection with the deployment of our equipment on site, our teams support with varying levels of commitment the different phases of the commissioning tests. Acting as a simple assistant to the on-site commissioning teams, we can also take charge of the complete commissioning project from A to Z. If this is required, we take care of:
- Writing the test protocol upstream;
- Carrying out on-site tests;
- Recording and processing of data;
- Preparation of the final test report.
We have always been driven by the vision that commissioning can be done differently .
We believe that this phase can be optimised, in particular thanks to our SMART equipment and solutions: connected load banks and supervision software (Rentalab and EkkoSense). Amongst other things, this allows Commissioning teams to:
- Save time in carrying out their tests (up to 20%) thanks to the remote control of load banks via a supervision PC;
- To bring added value to the tests , in particular thanks to the data collected (P/U/I/Delta T) via the supervision software.
Our state-of-the-art equipment perfectly meets the needs and requirements of end customers.
With their low Delta T, their integrated ATS, their 50/50 load sharing and their extremely precise measurement feedback, we are fully capable of optimising your test and commissioning phase.
These tests are not yet compulsory (except in the USA); they are nevertheless strongly recommended and will certainly become mandatory in the years to come, in Europe but also everywhere in the world.
